We will be removing Himalayan blackberry and common tansy along the shoreline of the Nisqually River. These invasive plant species are strangling our plantings in that area, and pulling them will help our native flora flourish!

This 3-hour long work party will take place from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m., but participants will receive 4 volunteer hours to account for drive time.

Our work parties are rain or shine! Please wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty, and closed-toed shoes.

We will provide pre-packaged snacks. Minors are welcome as long as they are accompanied by an adult.

You MUST register through EVENTBRITE as well in order to receive specific site directions and secure your spot.  Register here!

No special skills, equipment, or experience required.  All are welcome!  The site is flat and easy to navigate.
